"Lori wrote a grant for the Town of Fleming and we are happy to say it was successful.  She is very professional and I highly recommend her."

Welcome to the Sustainability Project:

Saskatchewan small towns face many challenges. We need to work at dealing with these challenges in order to sustain our small towns. It is a lifestyle worth preserving, and although it will take some work is well worth the effort.

For the past century and a half (or so) up until the last five years, Councils' jobs didn't change much from generation to generation. Local folks took their turns making decisions for the Town, balanced the budget and took care of the roads, water and sewer, taxation and infrastructure. Many made decisions without a lot of thought to a hundred years down the road, and most of the time that worked. It is not working anymore.

We need to work to sustain our communities, to help them in those areas where they are struggling.  In order for a community to thrive and grow it takes:

1. More money flowing in than out.
2. An engaged willing community.
3. A welcoming diverse community.
4. Infrastructure that is maintained and upgraded.
5. A variety of beautification efforts.
6. A strong volunteer component.
7. A progressive knowledgeable council that is transparent.
8. A community 'will' to provide supports for their community.
9. A diverse economy built upon local assets.
10. Housing that is accessible for all stages of income.

I developed the Sustainability Project as a means to provide supports as needed to small population communities in Saskatchewan to meet these objectives.
